ALERT ON MISSING FILES:


Apparently, RMTool (a utility that scans your game and informs you of missing files), MISSED a file. Its not a problem though, just download this image:

and this one:

and put it in your RTP's "Backdrop" folder


NOTE TO PEOPLE WHO DOWNLOADED FROM ZSHARE (The old version):

Just to remind you again people, THERE IS A PATCH FOR THIS GAME. You can get it here:

http://rpgmaker.net/users/Aten/locker/FFD_FIXES.rar

Also download this file:

And put it in your RTP > CHARSET Folder! Hopefully that reduces emails I get, because this patch fixes all the problems people usually outline.


About

A long time ago, before RM2K3 came out (Or at least I didn't know about it) I was making a game for myself for fun called Final Fantasy Dreams. It was a Text Adventure game I was making in C++. At the time I didn't know about RM2K or 2K3 and when I found out, it opened a whole new door for me.

Story

A mysterious cave which was located on the furthest reaches of the world. The very mention of the cave sparked the interest of every adventurer, every scientist, and every archaeologist. However, the cave refused
to accept visitors, for nobody ever came back. Except for one man who did. A man who came back blind and deaf, but able to speak, carrying a message...

Beware the man with the eye, and the voice, of God.

Immediately, the appearance of four "Crystal Towers" ended the "Whispering Cave" era. Until two friends decided to go to the place now called...

The Paradise of God

They know that a tough journey lies ahead of them. They don't know how they will get there. Yet they are
willing to discover the secrets. The answers all lie within. And the only way to find out.....is to go.

Systems

Steal System - Basically most FF's

Bushido System - FFX Style, WITH timers IN the DBS

Limit Break System - FF7 Style, More damage = Faster filling bars

Summon - FFX Style summon system with over 500 frame animations

Gil Toss System - Like FF5

Blue Magic - Kinda like FF9 and last but not least

Kamikaze System - FF8 Style.

Auto-Phoenix - As seen in FFX

Lots of sidequests and optional bosses, some of which the average player will never even find.

Conclusion

So you see, my main mission was not to make FF Fangame NO#58421, but rather to make a game as close as possible to the real (SNES) thing using the best from all systems.(To date I have never seen a fan game using all of this, maybe there are?)I could have used other characters but then, FF7 was my favorite.

Go to your volume control and raise the SW Synth, it probably is low. (If your using Windows.)
hello question iam stuck at desert where is chaos tower how to get out
How is this game playable? The bug fix for the 'Mid1' glitch after the minotaur SEEMS simple enough, but... the current download for the game gives you a .exe file and nothing else. No Rtp folder, no backdrop folder to put the files in. Just the application. I'm not an RPG Maker user, so I don't really know how to access it all properly, so... am I missing something here? The game crashes for me after the minotaur, and I HAVE downloaded the two missing files, but... there's nowhere to put them.

All you people who've managed to play the game... how did you do that? XD

EDIT: Well I solved that issue, buuuuuut another error beat me down three continents in XD

Man i have the same problem. :(


Can you help me??
How to release barrier the so i can enter thedeepof forest I try to enter but always go back to first place when i enter the forest thank you
I still play this game lol... but i'm on new game+ , and the event that is supposed to happen in the water shrine (where the mystery man shows up for the first time) just doesn't happen.. so i exit the room and get warped to where i need to get the boat tickets. This puts Tifa back in my party, except the game acts like she's never cured from the wight's curse (making her unusable) and i can't enter the mountain path to the village either.. game-stopping bug in new game+ ? i really really want to continue this new game+ :(
What's the average playtime for this game?
Note: This leads into something nicer. Please just bare with me.

I seem have encountered a very annoying glitch when I downloaded this.

You see, for some reason the actual dialogue in this game from all characters in the game seem to give all the characters the same bland, flat, interchangeable personalities, as if it was all written by a bad fanfic writer who didn't really think about how the characters would actually react to specific situations, and thought that if made Squall say "whatever" in the middle of sentences here and there, no one would truly care. Oh, and the first dungeon for some reason couldn't be more of a bland, forgettable forest with nothing remotely remarkable about it. Do you know if there's a way to get rid of these?
On a completely serious note however, the game does have a certain inescapable visual novelty to its combat system, especially considering just how well you incorporated Limit breaks, I mean holy cow was that impressive! And according a review you incorporate other thing like Yuna's summons? That my friend is quite a feat!

I also loved how unbelievably well you managed to create even more visual novelty with your choices of enemies. Am I wrong when I say that you took the minotaur sprite from the Battle toads arcade game, and a lot of the enemies that you fight in the town are are from other beat em ups, right?

You may not know to write dialogue for different characters all that well, but you certainly can entertain in a special way. I'm gonna quit this for now, but when I feel like taking a break between different games here, and can deal with unbelievably bad dialogue I can see myself picking this up again, and that's something I up until now had no real set option for, and I thank you for that Aten.
Hi, can anybody help me? I downloaded the game and ran it, but it crashes immediately after starting up.

Did you install the 2k3 RTP? It might need it to run.
I was really enjoying this, for several hours too, until I came across a game destroying bug; the menu no longer opens. Once I reached the Ice continent it went away and hasn't come back ... no menu access whatsoever, which means the game is now absolutely broken and since the author hasn't replied to anyone in a YEAR now, I guess there's no chance of it being fixed.

Such a shame and such a wasted potential. Uninstall I guess :(

Or if you own 2k3, try to hunt down and fix the bug! :>
That's what I'd normally do but sadly Aten has the game setup inside an encrypted standalone EXE. No tinkering possible :(

~edit~

It's back! :D I checked back over the 9 pages and grabbed the FFD_Fixes file Aten posted, extracting those maps to the FFD folder even though I grabbed the supposedly fixed version from here on RMN only yesterday. Oh well, as long as it works! I finally have the menu back -- now I can carry on playing! <3 I really am having a great time with this, yeah the character dialogues are a bit screwy, but the game itself is great fun with some VERY impressive additions. Dat battle system! ^_^
Its actually stated pretty clearly in the bookshelf in clouds house which cloud recommends you read when the game starts...

If the Custom Menu doesn't open, (unless it's a part of the story) just enter and exit any INN to reset the Custom Menu.

also

If for some reason, your move speed becomes really slow, or fast, just enter and exit any town and the speed will reset.

and

If you enter a dungeon and it flashes RED then it means that there is some kind of great treasure hidden in that dungeon. Look for them thoroughly.
Yes, I already read it thanks :) I tried that and it didn't work - the menu had gone completely and it wouldn't come back. I also had the speed issue last night but haven't yet gotten to an inn to fix it -- and yes, I also knew about the red flashes that signify great/important treasure :)

@MorteTorment

You should carry on playing! There's a LOT of really cool touches in this game and, yes, the summons are crazy good -- if a little overpowered ;) You can even toggle between full summon animation and "optimised" summon animation, if you get sick of seeing the same summoning sequence repeatedly. All in all, I have to say; this is a magnificent fangame with tons of cool features and an expansive world, the only "failing" would be the hokey plot/text but egh, the game itself is amazing and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

I'd have definitely preferred having open game files though, especially since Aten said he doesn't intend to continue working on the game. The game could do with a larger selection of battle music, for one, rather than the 4 standard tracks xD No "Man with the Machinegun"? Sacrilege! :D
looking for some help in the iflilu ? forest on the ice continent if anyone could steer me in the right direction it would be appreciated
